3 Must-Try Ramadan Deliveries in Kuala Lumpur

3 Must-Try Ramadan Deliveries in Kuala Lumpur

With so many changes happening over the last 6 weeks, Ramadan meal options have taken on a new direction – in the form of food delivery to ensure we all remain safe at home. I’ve had the pleasure of sampling the Ramadan delivery spread from three hotels – Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur, Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur and Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur.

These hotels have showcased some of their best Ramadan highlights to ensure those who are fasting can still enjoy the essence of “buka puasa”, hotel style. The meal options start from RM40 per head and I’m sure you’ll find your favourite items available among these offerings.

 

Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur

P1740636

Set 1

P1740653

Le Méridien Vegetables Biryani Rice

Prior to MCO, I had a sneak preview of Le Meridien’s Santapan Muhibbah, which is now converted into Santapan Muhibbah in the comfort of one’s home. Chef Budiman and his team have curated 6 set menus available from RM50 nett per person (set 1, 2 & 3) to RM60 nett per person (set 4, 5 & 6) in collaboration with TableApp via pick-up and delivery.

Food is packed “sous vide” style for peace of mind

The sets are prepared “sous vide” style to ensure proper food handling and hygiene for your peace of mind. I opted for Set 1 and Set 3 – for variety and both included some of Chef Budiman’s signatures like Ayam Percik and Nasi Biryani.

This ayam percik is “bomb”

Set 3 – Le Méridien Kampung Fried Rice, Ayam Percik, Stir-Fried Vegetables with Prawns & Cucumber Acar

I’ve always liked the ayam percik at Le Meridien, and the sous vide version is just as good – lemak, spicy and fall off the bone tender. The lamb vinadaloo and biryani rice pairing is spot on, and I rather enjoyed the chicken and shrimp bubur lambuk. I had a full portion to myself and mind you, I’ve never been a bubur lambuk fan.

All delivery and pick-up orders can be made via bit.ly/SantapanMuhibbah. With each delivery order, you’ll get a RM50 voucher as a token of appreciation, valid until 31 May 2021 and redeemable at any Le Meridien’s F&B outlets – PRIME, Favola, Latest Recipe or Gastro Sentral.

 

Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur

Gamelan Feast by Mandarin Oriental

The culinary team at Mandarin Oriental have risen to the challenge of ensuring the MO Ramadan experience is not lost during food delivery. There are three Ramadan sets available (from 2 to 12 pax) – Kompang, Rebana and Gamelan.

Love the sleek packaging

P1740749

Chicken, lamb and beef satay with condiment

I received the Gamelen set for 2 (RM276) – Mandarin Oriental’s most luxurious set comprising a rather massive spread of satay, sup kambing, fried seabass, crab in spicy coconut broth, chicken 65, asparagus goreng belacan and kuih muih, among others.

Sup kambing roti bengali – good stuff!

P1740751

Ketam masak lemak daun selasih

The sup kambing was delicious; spice-laden, aromatic and filled with generous chunks of tender lamb. There was hardly any gamey smell or aftertaste to my surprise. The crab curry is a showstopper and one you must try. I reckon this is Mandarin Oriental’s highlight and one that is done superbly.

P1740768

Chicken 65

P1740770

Deep fried seabass with herb sauce and young mango salad

I was pleased to see my favourite chicken 65 on the menu (Mosaic’s specialty) and the deep-fried seabass with herb sauce and young mango salad goes really well with rice. Even the asparagus sambal was cooked to the T. Portions are very generous – the Gamelan set for 2 is so “extra” it can feed 3-4 pax easily.

This portion is for 2 pax but the spread is so massive it can easily feed 3-4 pax

These sets are available for order at kualalumpur.mandarinorientalshop.com/collections/ramadan-delivery. They are priced from RM88 onwards per person and you can opt to pick-up from the concierge or have it delivered to you for RM35.

 

Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur

P1740836

The Horizon Set

From 23rd April till 23rd May, Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur has three iftar sets put together for delivery so you can enjoy snippets of their previously intended Ramadan spread. “The Feast, The Horizon and The Shangri-La” are priced at RM40, RM60 and RM80 nett per person and features local favourites like Ayam Kapitan, Daging Masak Rendang, Nasi Biryani Kambing and Kari Kepala Ikan.

Ayam Kapitan

I really enjoyed the ayam kapitan and daging masak rendang – the chicken curry was thick and robust from the assorted spices, with a creamy (lemak) finish. Just how I like my curry kapitan to be. The rendang was also delicious as you can taste a good amount of kerisik and spices, and the beef was tender yet still had a slight resistance; the way rendang should be.

Daging Masak Rendang

P1740884

Nasi Biryani Kambing is good!

This is Jien’s preferred rendang style – dry and spicy with good textural contrast – so he finished most of it. The minimum order is 3 pax for all the Ramadan sets and you can opt to self-collect from the hotel lobby or get them delivered to you (free delivery within 3km, 3-5km RM18 and 5-10km RM38).
